Thanks sy. I know things will have to pick up at one time or another.

And it's not like this is the end of the world, really just a bunch of small issues.

Yea, but small issues clumped together make a big mess, and I'm very familiar with that kind of stress. So I know how you feel - but things will get better.

Things will get better Matt. I know how you feel though. Im having a tough run myself and this is the best hobby, but perhaps the most frustrating hobby ever. My last spawn didn't get much color until weeks 6-7 other than a few and growth in weeks 6-12 is the peak time so don't worry much your not off track.

For the fry not growing.. How many, and how big of tank... Plus how much of what do you feed them, and how often is the water cleaned.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

1) 40ish
2)10g
3)Microworms, banana worms, bbs, and I have added decaps before water changes on the off chance they would start to accept it.
4)Every second day... Third if I am busy. 50% with siphon

I don't think I am really doing anything wrong, but they just won't grow. I have read reports or dragons/metallics taking longer but I don't know... It should certainly not take this long.

The water changes are the reason. Mine grew faster than yours, because I cleaned it every day. With 40 or so in a 10, they will take longer to grow because of the growth stunting hormone and ammonia build up from the foods, and the fish's waste. Every day would be best - even twice a day to get them to literally double in size.

What Sena said is 100% correct. The amount of water exchange for optimum growth is ridiculous.
